Summary: We live in a world of documents — bland, nondescript, run-of-the-mill documents that nobody ever notices. Until you understand their stories — and their profound impacts. From the Rosetta Stone to President Obama’s birth certificate to Alfred Nobel’s will, Webster’s Dictionary, the Fannie Farmer Cookbook, the “We Can Do It!” poster, the Nineteenth Amendment, and the first Internet Protocol, Joe Janes throws open the idea of a “document,” examining the twists and turns of history through these and other examples throughout the millennia — how they came to be; what they mean; and, in many cases, what they are becoming in a changing world.
 Speaker: Joseph Janes, Associate Professor, University of Washington Information SchoolA frequent speaker in the US and abroad, Joe Janes is the author of several books, including Documents That Changed the Way We Live, and Library 2020, and has written a monthly column for American Libraries magazine since 2002. He holds the M.L.S. and Ph.D. from Syracuse University, and has taught at the University of Michigan, the University of Toronto, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the State University of New York at Albany as well as at Syracuse and Washington.

Nature Research launches a wide-ranging free peer review training course, delivered by its journal editors to meet the needs of researchers who are new to peer review or those looking
to improve their skills.

TheFocus on Peer Review’ online course, developed by NatureMasterclasses, uses video interviews with Nature Research journal editors, experienced peer reviewers, and published authors to share key insights into the complexities of peer review.

The breadth of content – totalling 63 videos, short text posts, and interactive activities – provides users with a comprehensive and practical overview of the peer review process, focusing on four areas: the role of a peer reviewer, how to prepare a peer review report, the ethics of peer review and innovations in peer review…”
